In today’s ever-changing business climate, having a corporate culture that not only fits your present business model and customers’ needs but those of the future is absolutely paramount. How’s your culture? Successfully meeting new challenges, your employees are happy, and production is up? Or are your people stuck in old ways of doing things, non-motivated and siloed, and you’re being outpaced by your competitors? If you’re the latter, it might be time for a culture change.
At Simon Association Management Associates (SAMC), we are culture change experts who specialize in helping companies and their staff assess their organizational culture and business model as it is today and embark on a process to implement the culture they want and need for tomorrow. We have developed specialized methodologies to assess, diagnose, and help transform companies to better align their cultures with their business models and objectives, resulting in a positive, productive, and highly adaptive workplace.
Unlocking Your Organizational Potential
At each company we work with, we understand that its culture is the heartbeat of its success. A strong culture defines who they are and shapes their future. Our Culture Valuation and Change program is designed to help businesses harness the power of their culture, evaluate its current state, identify areas for improvement, and facilitate transformation.
Evaluating Your Current Culture:
Our approach begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your current organizational culture. We use a combination of data-driven assessments, employee surveys, interviews, and observation to gain a deep understanding of your existing culture. This step involves:
- Cultural Audit: Assessing the values, beliefs, and norms that drive your organization.
- Employee Engagement Surveys: Gathering valuable insights from your team members.
- Leadership Interviews: Understanding the leadership’s perception of the culture.
- Observational Analysis: Identifying cultural patterns through workplace dynamics.
- Cultural Assessment: The Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI).
- Determining What to Change and how to measure the impact of the changes.
What Should Be Changed:
Once we have a clear picture of your current culture, we work collaboratively with your leadership team to define what aspects of your culture should be enhanced, modified, or transformed. This phase involves:
- Goal Setting: Defining and aligning the desired cultural outcomes with your business
- Gap Analysis: Identifying the gaps between your current and desired culture.
- Stakeholder Involvement: Engaging employees at all levels to ensure buy-in and alignment with the change process.
- Culture Roadmap: Developing a tailored plan that outlines specific actions, timelines, and responsibilities for culture transformation.
Our Transformation Process:
Our proven culture transformation process is centered around sustainability, inclusivity, and measurable results. We guide you through the following steps:
- Culture Alignment: Ensuring your culture aligns with your business strategy and values.
- Behavioral Change: Facilitating workshops, pilot initiatives, and training programs to foster desired behaviors, with management leadership at each level and stage.
- Communication Strategy: Creating a comprehensive communication plan to keep all stakeholders informed and engaged.
